Meaning of Pal Jang

Taegeuk 8 Jang symbolizes the "Kon", one of the 8 divination signs. Kon represents "Yin" and earth, meaning the root and settlement and also the begining and the end. This is the last of the 8 Taegeuk poomsaes, which should enable the trainee to undergo the Dan(black belt) promotion test. New movements are dubal dangseong apchagi, momtong kodureo bakkatmakki, arae kodureo makki, twiochagi, and palkup dollyochigi. Emphasis must be laid on the accuracy of stepping and the difference between jumping-over kick and dubal-dangsong (alternate jumping kick in the air). This poomsae is practiced by 1st Kup-grade trainees and above.
